One of my daughters has her 38th birthday today – and she has two sons in the meantime for herself. So giving birth is going on and on – and everyone knows that it is sometimes not easy to care for children – but we all (on every continent) are proud, if we managed all things! Recently I found in the New York Times a fine gallery with photos related to the topic BIRTH, for example 4 mothers with newborns!

my wife, 38 years ago, nearly died, giving birth to my daughter; my own mother, 68 years ago, immediately gave me into an orphanage and left me; it took 40 years for me to find her – and all the other births in Africa, Asia, America – in times of wars or even in peace: not always easy. Actually in Germany both parents have to work for the income – and the kids spend their childhood in the kindergarten, not at home, as 50 years ago, with a mother caring for them …

    Happy Birthday to your daughter! We do live in much better times, but I’m really glad I wasn’t born in any of the places you mentioned. It could be worse, if it was China, I may never have been born.

    Sorry to hear you took 40 years to find your mother. But glad you found her in the end. It takes true determination to never give up and keep searching.


  12. Such a tiny precious bundle. It reminds me of our second grandchild who was very early and spent time in an incubator. Now he is 5, full of life and vigour. What a blessing.


  13. Ahhhh. 38. A wonderful age. Happy birthday to her.
    And your perserverence is admirable. I’m happy for you that it paid off.

    Happy birthday to your daughter.
    40 years to find your mother…heartbreaking story.


  15. Happy Birthday to your daughter.
    Must have been traumatic for your wife to have such a difficult childbirth.
    I once knew a person who had 12 children. One of my good friends has 8 children.
